MidAtlantic Farm Credit

MidAtlantic Farm Credit

The Farm Credit System was founded in 1916 to provide America’s farmers, ranchers and rural communities with access to reliable and consistent credit. Today, there are approximately 65 independently operated Farm Credit organizations across the country and Puerto Rico – each providing financial assistance to their local communities.

U.S. Communities

US CommU.S. Communities is the leading national government purchasing cooperative that reduces the cost of goods and services by aggregating the purchasing power of public agencies nationwide. U.S. Communities provides participants with access to a broad line of competitively solicited contracts with national suppliers that have committed to providing their lowest overall public agency pricing. Each month more than 500 new public agencies register to participate. This continuing rapid growth is fueled by the program’s proven track record of providing public agencies unparalleled value and the best government pricing available.

Wetlands Studies and Solutions

WetlandsWetland Studies and Solutions, Inc. (WSSI), a Davey Tree Company, is one of the leading natural and cultural resource consulting firms in the Mid‐Atlantic, and the largest in our local niche. Our staff assists both public and private sector clients with Clean Water Act permitting and develops innovative solutions to water quality issues. We have worked on over 7,900 projects in the region, encompassing more than 298,000 acres.
These projects include stream restoration for TMDL credit and mitigation, federal and state Clean Water Act permitting, wetland delineations, natural resource inventories, forest stand delineations, critical area studies, RTE species studies, and tree preservation plans. Our ongoing partnerships with counties and cities have fine‐tuned our understanding of the issues facing local jurisdictions – and the need to strike a balance between tight budgets, necessary projects and upgrades, and permit compliance requirements.

Zelenkofske Axelrod


Zelenkofske Axelrod LLC (ZA) is a Pennsylvania based regional CPA firm employing over 45 professionals, with offices in Harrisburg, Greensburg, Pittsburgh, and Greater Philadelphia; Dover, Delaware, and expanding into Maryland, that specializes in providing auditing, accounting and consulting services to governmental entities. ZA’s growth over the years has been through specialization in the governmental industry. They are leaders in providing accounting, auditing, and consulting services to governmental entities of all types – that’s why so many of these entities, large and small, engage in their services. Their clients include counties, component units of the state, townships, boroughs, authorities, cities, and school districts. Not all CPA firms specialize in the complexity of accounting and auditing standards which govern these entities. They do! Their partners and directors have worked in the Big 4 accounting firms and have brought their experience to Zelenkofske Axelrod LLC to grow their governmental practice to where it is today. The quality of their work is second to non, particularly in the Government Industry. This fact is evident in many ways, but independently supported through their most recent Peer Review which included review of specific governmental engagements, resulting in an unqualified opinion with no Letter of Comment.

Thank you for your support of Maryland Counties!
